Congratulations to the 2013 SIC Winner
On May 2nd 2013, the 2nd annual UT Horizon Fund Student Investment Competition was a great success. This competition enabled student teams to present their business plan and ideas to real investors, which included an elevator pitch contest, content covering matters pertaining to starting a company and one on one interactions with investors, mentors and advisers.
We were excited to see all of the hard work and diligence of UT students, their faculty educators, external mentors and UT staff in one place which contained a morning competition between 15 highly competitive teams, with the final 4 presenting that afternoon.
We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2013 UT Horizon Fund Student Investment Competition is American Water Recycling (AWR) from the University of Texas at El Paso. Their student team comprised of Diego Capeletti, Eva Deemer and Alex Pastor was awarded $100,000 in seed funding for their company. American Water Recycling will enable industries to discharge safe, clean re-useable water using an innovative process that is economically and environmentally sustainable.
